    State transportation officials want to do something about traffic and safety on Interstate 94 between downtown Minneapolis and Interstate 694, as well as state Highway 252 between I-694 and Highway 610. Minnesota Department of Transportation is considering converting a stretch of highway into a freeway and putting MnPASS lanes on I-94 and 252. But some are raising concerns about what the proposed changes might mean for residents of north Minneapolis who live along the I-94 corridor. Alex Burns is chair of the Sierra Club North Star Chapter's land use and transportation team. He said that more traffic on I-94 will...

    The Daily Reporter ^ | December 6, 2019 | Nate Beck
    A long-dormant commission charged with planning major road construction opted not to advance any projects after a five-year hiatus that ended Friday. The Transportation Projects Commission met for the first time since 2014 on Friday. The commission is charged with advancing planned highway projects to the Legislature and directing the study of others as part of the Wisconsin Department of Transportation’s Major Highway Development program, typically among some of the biggest in the state. “This committee has been un-functioning for several years and we want to have an opportunity for a good group of people to think through transportation issues...
  • Obama Reportedly Said Trump ‘Knows Absolutely Nothing’ After 2016 White House Meeting

    Daily Caller ^ | 11/26/19
    Former President Barack Obama reportedly told a visitor that President Donald Trump “knows absolutely nothing” after the two met at the White House in 2016. Obama and his small staff had to deal with “a crazy president personally obsessed with Obama” after Trump won in 2016, Politico reported Tuesday. The former president has gradually become more vocal against Trump since the election, but appears to have privately voiced concerns throughout Trump’s tenure. “He [Trump] knows absolutely nothing,” Obama reportedly said after one White House meeting. Obama “held out hope” for a traditional relationship as past and current president, Obama’s first...

    Reporter Newspapers ^ | May 15, 2019 | Dyana Bagby
    No new or specific details about the I-285 toll lanes project were revealed at a May 15 Georgia Department of Transportation meeting held in Dunwoody, but the state agency did fulfill a requirement to officially close out the “Revive285” project that began in 2006. A future round of public meetings that will include detailed maps of what properties could be taken are expected to occur in early 2020. Dubbed by GDOT as a “conversation” meeting about the planned toll lanes along the top end of I-285, the one held Tuesday afternoon at St. Luke’s Presbyterian Church attracted about 60 people....

    We all know our President is in Vietnam meeting with the North Korean leader. North Korea has been a threat in the world for a very long time. My wife and I were up early to see the event on television. We watched the initial face to face. It went quite well. I thought both men looked much more relaxed than the last time in June of 2018 at the Singapore Summit. FoxNews handled the event with respect and earnestness.Over on CNN it was quite different. It was a striking display of just how destructive CNN chooses to be. They...
  • Why Trump cancelled his G20 formal meeting with Erdogan (Turkey)

    Ahval (Events) ^ | 2018-11-29 | Ilhan Tanir
    On Thursday, as U.S. President Donald Trump flew to the Argentinian capital of Buenos Aires to attend the G20 summit, the White House told its press pool that his scheduled formal meeting at the summit with his Turkish counterpart, Recep Tayyip ErdoÄźan, had been rearranged as a short, pull-aside meeting. With little chance that anything of substance will be discussed during such a meeting, this can be taken more or less as a politer alternative to cancelling altogether. No official reason has been given for the change, but events over the last few days give us enough clues to go...

    Christian music artist Kari Jobe recently joined a group of worship leaders for a special meeting at the White House, and she posted some profound thoughts about the kingdom of God being seen on earth and the urgent need for prayer for America's leaders. The Christian artists, including Tauren Wells and Danny Gokey, were invited to a "Faith Briefing" which was held to show what the Trump Administration is doing in the area of faith-based projects. Jobe posted about the visit on Instagram, calling it an honor. "Cody and I were honored to be invited," she said. "As I stepped...

    At a packed town hall meeting in Brooklyn Thursday evening to discuss options for saving a crumbling section of the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, city officials from the Department of Transportation came up against some not-unexpected pushback against a proposal that would involve closing the Brooklyn Heights promenade for six years. This was the first public meeting since the city unveiled two separate proposals for the project last week. The meeting opened with a presentation of both options—each projected to cost between $3 billion and $4 billion—while Polly Trottenberg, the city’s transportation commissioner, braced herself for the inevitable backlash. “I understand a...
  • Chris Wallace: So What If Trump Knew About Don Jr’s Meeting With The Russian Lawyer?

    Hotair ^ | 07/28/2018 | AllahPundit
    Via Mediaite, he goes too far in making his point but there’s truth to what he says. Point one: You don’t need Michael Cohen’s word (which is worth nothing) to believe that Trump knew about Don Jr’s meeting with the Russian lawyer when it happened. It’s absurd to think he wouldn’t have been informed that someone with ties to the Russian government was promising dirt on the Democratic nominee in the middle of the campaign. It’s not like the people who attended the meeting on the campaign’s behalf were no-name functionaries who never would have received an audience with...

    Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un have communicated several times over the past few months and are seeking to schedule a meeting between the two later this year, a new report says. One option on the table is for Abe to travel to Pyongyang in August, but another possibility is for Abe and Kim to meet during the Eastern Economic Forum in September if Kim decided to attend, according to the Yomiuri newspaper. The report comes after a Tuesday summit between the U.S. and North Korea, where President Trump and Kim signed a joint...

    Officials and visitors assembled for an Illinois tollway board meeting Thursday morning were out in record time. That wasn't because of a light agenda. Rather, the absence of board directors meant the agency didn't have enough for a quorum. Six directors are required, and only four were there at 9 a.m. when the meeting was supposed to start. Board members present were Chairman Robert Schillerstrom, the Rev. Corey Brooks of Chicago, David Gonzalez, the mayor of Chicago Heights, and Craig Johnson, Elk Grove Village mayor. Director Earl Dotson arrived shortly after the meeting was canceled. The board has been short...

    The meeting between the two was a part of the former US President's tour around the globe, though it went largely unnoticed by the media. Former US President Barack Obama met with Chinese President Xi Jinping merely weeks after Obama's successor as the American leader, Donald Trump, visited China. Obama and Xi were photographed smiling and drinking tea at the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing and were quickly dubbed as "veteran cadres," the term generally used to refer to retired Chinese Communist Party officials.

    OAKLAND — The Maryland Department of Transportation is taking another look at the Oakland bypass project. Deputy Transportation Secretary Jim Ports made the announcement during MDOT’s annual meeting with local residents and officials last Friday morning at the courthouse. Every year, MDOT officials present a draft of their six-year Consolidated Transportation Program (CTP) during a tour of Maryland’s 23 counties and Baltimore City. “We have decided to reignite the decision for the Oakland bypass,” Ports told local residents last week. “We’re going to look at a practical-design approach to try and save money.” He said the decision was made after...

    When Patricia Nazzal videotaped a congressional motorcade passing her car on Interstate 70, she ended up documenting a fatal crash just ahead of her. Maryland State Police said one person was killed Wednesday morning in a four-vehicle crash as other motorists stopped for the motorcade on westbound I-70 at the ramp from northbound Interstate 270. Police had not released the identity of the person who died as of late Wednesday night. The motorcade was part of a trip by U.S. Senate Democrats to Shepherdstown, West Virginia, where they gathered Wednesday for a retreat. Authorities did not say who was in...
